Everyday Samurai – Life, Liberty, Body, & Mind | Libertarianism.UK Podcast

Today’s guest is Ken Yamarashi, the Everyday Samurai. We spoke about life, liberty, the body, and the mind, and how to tie up all four together into a single cohesive package. With a 33-year background in law enforcement and the military, Ken is a martial artist expert currently living in Japan with his own following of people who draw inspiration from his pathway through life. With his deep understanding of Austrian Economics and his pivotal appreciation of liberty, we spoke about his background, how to live a freer life, and how a person can manoeuvre through an increasingly chaotic world created by the world’s bureaucrats and states, fuelled by their endless fiat currency junk.
